II.2.4) Description of the procurement
This challenge is being conducted as a Pre-Commercial Procurement. This challenge aims to provide a tool that would enable stakeholders in the plastic waste industry, including SEPA, to assess the quality of plastic transported for recycling and to discourage any activities that result in environmental harm.
Waste plastic is usually highly compacted, baled and transported in shipping containers. Bale size is approximately 1.8m x 1.2m x 1m with some variation. Bale weight varies from approx. 200kg to 350kg.
Although it is SEPA's intention to use the resultant solution for regulatory purposes, we believe that stakeholders across the plastic waste value chain would be interested in purchasing any possible solution.
